Welcome to music at Byrd Elementary.  I love music and am looking forward to sharing that love of music with my students at Byrd!  I have taught music in PA, WV, NC and SC to grades K-12.   I also have served as a church pianist and music director in many of those states as well.  I am currently the music director at Trinity United Methodist Church in Aiken.

When I am not making music, I am watching sports, going to the Y, or visiting my children or family.  I also have a cat named T'challa and a grand puppy named Scarlette.

I am excited about the songs we will sing, the instruments we will play, and the many different types of music we will hear this year. If you need to reach me during the school day, I am available from 2:30 PM-3:00 PM, or from 10:30 AM-11:30 AM.
